Exam

Today I sat down with thirty or so other people and translated four passages, written largely by people whose names began with A, from Latin into English. I have come to the conclusion that it is never possible to know too many adverbs. The exam went fairly well. I'm sure I've improved since the last exam, but my hopes are not high for passing.

Afterwards, I met many new students from both my own and my other departments, and played with an increasingly social and charming kitten, but not all at once.
